From Brilliant To Petulant Within Minutes

West Brom 0-2 Manchester City: Super Mario Balotelli netted twice at the Hawthorns on Sunday and went from brilliant to petulant within minutes.

The former 20-year-old Inter Milan striker certainly knows how to find the net but unless he reigns in his outbursts he'll be spending the majority of his time suspended.

Good to see a reincarnation of Jake Burns out of Stiff Little Fingers is now the anchorman on MOTD!

Tell you what, whoever did the commentary on MoTD2 last night was absolute rubbish - referred to Pascal Zabaleta and stated that Balotelli's goals last night were his first in City colours - try doing some research!

Listening to Colin Murray, the Irish host of MOTD2, is like listening to finger nails on a chalkboard.

Balo reminds me off Drogba for all the right and unfortunately wrong reasons. He needs to cut out the nonsense. He has the potential to be one of the best the Premier League has seen.

At the end of the day he won us the game. Ask United fans whether Cantona, Keane and Ronaldo would have been half the players without the emotion and it would be a straight no. Granted he needs to channel his emotions a bit but I've rarely seen a player with that sort of presence playing for city. Lets just ride with it. I think he's great. Everyone hates us, I don''t care if Ballo makes them hate us even more. We need to do our talking on the pitch.
